Well I figured its about time to start this even though there won't be anything to big happening for a couple months, but I figure this way I can keep everything in order.

So I had a 97 f150 reg cab 2wd for my first vehicle had it for 4 years loved it.

Then after having a kid I decided to upgrade in February I bought a 00 4x4 scab. Thought I got a good deal but ended up getting screwed by the dealer it was junk. Here's it getting towed only after about 6 months of owning it.

After looking for a new truck a friend pointed me into the direction of my current truck. Its a 99 f150 4x4 scab lariat 5.4 with 127k. It has true duals a 3" body lift, 4" suspension lift, and 305/70/16 general grabber at2's on American racing wheels. Dealer site pics.

First mod was my toolbox, skull hitch cover, and smoked led 3rd brake light that have been on all 3 of my trucks. I swapped them before driving off the lot.This is the best pic I have of them.

Next was cab lights. I got them from a member off of here.

I found a set in console thing that I cut and made fit for more room.

Next I painted some of the plastic pieces under the hood but unfortunately have no pictures.

After that I decided to do some custom lighting. I ordered green leds for my dome, doors, cargo, and license plate lights. Sorry for the bad pics my phone broke and I had a crappy loaner.

I have been wanting to do toolbox lights for awhile now and decided to go for it. I got them mounted but not wired.

One night after leaving a friends house I was backing out of his drive when the drivers side of the truck dropped. My lower ball joint had snapped. Again i apologize about the pics. This was a cold night.

After 5 days I finally get the truck back with a nice bill.

Krack499's build thread-forumrunner_20140102_002253.jpg

Then we finally get a decent day and I take advantage of it to wire up the toolbox lights. Pretty straight forward and easier then I thought it'd be.
